  • These are real hot Springs... the water comes out boiling a place... Innaccecible and forbidden sacred site because... But it must be, according to the map, a sort of pond water boiling water is 50 degrees and more. The temperature you want you'll find depending on the distance with the arrived water hot it is this is a river in which water is thrown... At the same place, it splits into two to join a little lower... what makes side shore, the water is warm and calm there is a little current on the other hand it is nice but wanting to let me go with the flow I came nose to nose with a saltwater crocodile (2 m) who has not followed me when I jumped out of the water!

Where to stay in Darwin

A small but distinctly cosmopolitan city, Darwin offers a surprisingly diverse range of lodgings, with most hotels located in or near the central business district. Despite this, finding a comfortable room during the peak May-to-September season can be extremely difficult, especially if you don't book ahead of your visit. If planning months in advance isn't an option, consider staying at a backpacker hostel or guesthouse outside the city center. Many of these smaller establishments offer access to free Wi-Fi and outdoor swimming pools.
